Summer Fun

Good morning! First of all I must apologise if I have not been round to see you. Blogger is still misbehaving, I kept leaving commenting hoping he would right himself but he hasn't! I have been through my Reading List leaving comments but I may have missed someone off that I usually comment on as my Reading List is so long!

We have a new challenge starting today at Crafty Sentiments and the theme this week is Summer. Perfect for us in the U.K. as we are having such lovely weather at the moment.  Here is my card:

I have used the lovely Spring Breeze which is available here. She has been coloured with Copics and cut out using Dienamics Pierced Oval Stax.  The papers are Nitwits Hello Sunshine.  I have used Spellbinders Grand Nesties Scalloped Oval for the mat and A2 Curved Borders One for the Border.  Cheery Lynn Mini Pearl Square Doily and Dienamics Sunshine.  The sentiment is LOTV and ribbon from my stash.

Here is another view:

We have a fabulous prize for the lucky winner:

Please go over to the Challenge and see what the rest of the DT have done!

Challenges I would like to enter:

Thank you so much for looking and any comments you may leave are really appreciated, especially with Blogger behaving the way he is at the mo! Take care xx

Love your colour choices and layout very much.
